The following is a daily text product issued by the OHRFC:

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1147 AM EDT Friday, May 29, 2015 

Moisture will continue to increase over Ohio Valley, so scattered showers and 
storms will be possible in most areas today. 

On Friday night and into the weekend a slow moving cold front will begin to
push into the basin from the west. It's slow progression will increase the
potential for excessive rainfall in any given area.  The potential for heavy
rain appears to be higher to the south of the Ohio River.

Today, the potential for river flooding will remain low. Rains over the weekend
may be heavy. There is some potential for minor flooding in the rivers of the 
northwest Ohio Valley...specifically in Indiana where it will take less 
rainfall to produce minor flooding. Overall, localized flash flooding is more
likely than any river flooding.

Rains were mostly scattered across the southern, middle and southeastern
portions of the basin. Basin averaged precipitation amounts were generally 0.40
inch or less.

Rains will be widespread and somewhat significant over the next two days. Basin
averages will range from 0.90 to 1.25 inches over the entire northwestern 2/3
of the Ohio Valley. Amounts then taper off to the southeast, reaching around
0.30 inch over far western Virginia.


Forecast precipitation graphics are available on the OHRFC Website
